“Waiting Egret”

The past several winters I’ve been painting in south Florida, which has meant spending lots of time painting in the Everglades.

Close encounters with birds are a regular part of any time spent in the Everglades. I’ve been increasingly captivated by their grace and dynamic beauty, and feel increasingly compelled to capture and convey those things, especially as I recall the role of these birds in very elegant East Asian art.
